Australia’s horrific new encryption law likely to obliterate its tech scene

Australia‘s government signed a bill into law last week giving law enforcement agencies the right to force technology companies to reveal users’ encrypted messages. Another way of putting it: Australia‘s tech scene will soon be located on the Wayback Machine.

The law was introduced as the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018, but now it’s official. And there’s a lot to be concerned about, even if you don’t live or work in Australia.

Too Much Partisanship In Washington? No, Ron Paul Says, Too Much Bipartisanship!

We suffer from too much bipartisanship when it comes to the welfare-warfare state. This bipartisanship has resulted in a national debt that is rapidly approaching 30 trillion dollars. This will inevitably lead to a major economic crisis. The way to avoid this crisis is to replace the bipartisan welfare-warfare consensus with a new consensus in favor of limited government, peace, free markets in all areas including currency, and auditing then ending the Fed.

Sabotage: The Deep State Has Destroyed Trump’s Chances Of A Trade Deal With China, And The Stock Market Is Tanking As A Result

It frustrates me that so few people seem to understand the gravity of the situation that we are facing. Our stores are filled with cheap products that come from China and they own more than a trillion dollars of our national debt. The two largest economies in the entire world are decoupling from one another, and if the Chinese conclude that they are not able to salvage the relationship then they will rapidly become an exceedingly dangerous enemy.

Spies, spies everywhere

The government, through its alphabet soup agencies and its surveillance apparatus, are terrorizing the American people. Terrorizing by government cannot survive against a well-armed citizenry. That is why the elected class have pushed so hard to disarm the populace and why the surveillance state is being expanded at breakneck speed.

Trump Has Been Broken (By the military/security complex, says Paul Craig Roberts.)

In order to protect himself from the military/security complex, President Trump has abandoned his intention of normalizing relations with Russia. Just as the neoconservative ideology needs US hegemony, the military/security complex needs an enemy to justify the $1,000 billion annual budget. The Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes have crafted Russia into that enemy. Trump intended to change that, but he has been prevented.

Historic Debt Is At The Core Of Our Economic Decline

Debt in itself is not necessarily just a tool to gain more wealth; it is also a tool to change and mold societies through financial leverage and disaster. To understand who is creating any fiscal downturn, and to understand who benefits from economic crisis, one only needs to consider who controls the debt.

That will move contFrol over Trump policies further into the hands of the neo-conservatives.

Microsoft warns that facial recognition technology will leave the world looking like George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984 unless governments are curbed

George Orwell's nightmare vision of the future in his novel 1984 could become reality unless governments are curbed, claims Microsoft's president.

Brad Smith has warned that facial recognition technology will lead to dystopian state powers unless new measures are adopted.

Microsoft say it has developed a new set of principles for deployment of the technology, called for new laws and industry rivals to follow suit.

Pax Americana: Pompeo tells UN, WTO, ICC to bow and comply with US-led world order

The US will lead a new liberal world order, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declared. Organizations and treaties not fitting this picture must be scrapped or reformed, so that non-compliers could not use them against America.
The vision of the bold new and prosperous (for the US and its supporters) world was delivered by Pompeo in a keynote speech to the German Marshall Fund on Tuesday.

The senior member of the Donald Trump administration said a multilateral approach is failing to produce a world of unrestricted capitalism, so the US should rule supreme – sorry, assume a leadership role – to ensure that countries like China didn’t try to offer an alternative way.

Australia passes ‘dangerous’ anti-encryption law after bipartisan compromise

Australia’s controversial anti-encryption bill is one step closer to becoming law, after the two leading but sparring party political giants struck a deal to pass the legislation.

The bill, in short, grants Australian police greater powers to issue “technical notices” — a nice way of forcing companies — even websites — operating in Australia to help the government hack, implant malware, undermine encryption or insert backdoors at the behest of the government.

If companies refuse, they could face financial penalties.

UK spies: You know how we said bulk device hacking would be used sparingly? Well, things have 'evolved'...

UK spies are planning to increase their use of bulk equipment interference, as the range of encrypted hardware and software applications they can't tap into increases.

Equipment interference (EI) – formerly known as computer network exploitation – is the phrase used for spies poking around in devices, like phones or computers, and media like USB sticks.

It allows them to gather up info they claim would otherwise be "lost" as it can't be obtained other ways – crucially, it means they can access encrypted data they cannot grab via the more traditional route of interception.

Study: Half of All High School Students Don’t Trust the Media to Report Accurately and Fairly

An increasing amount of distrust in the news media is a hot topic these days. While adults and consistent news consumers are usually the focus of such studies, those who are still in school are often left out of this conversation. And they shouldn’t be, especially considering the findings below.

Dec 06 11:26

The media and George H.W. Bush

A president is not a king. He’s certainly not a saint. Calling a former president “President” for life, giving his wife a title and a staff, building a temple (“presidential library”) in his honor, calling on his acquaintances/retainers to lionize him in the media for days, allowing pilgrims to file past his coffin, etc., are not republican traditions. Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe… the people who created this country would have been disgusted by this celebration/worship of even the most unsuccessful of these people. Enough already. -- Enough indeed.

To a Nation of Snowflakes, Christmas Has Become Another Trigger Word

To a nation of snowflakes, Christmas has become yet another trigger word. -- The latest Christmas casualties in the campaign to create one large national safe space are none other than the beloved animated classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (denounced for promoting bullying and homophobia) which first aired on television on December 6, 1964, and the Oscar-winning tune “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” (accused of being a date rape anthem) crooned by everyone from Dean Martin to Will Ferrell and Zooey Deschanel in the movie Elf. --Also on the endangered species Christmas list are such songs as “Deck the Halls” (it supposedly promotes “gay” apparel), “Santa Baby” (it has been denounced for “slut shaming”), and “White Christmas” (perceived as being racist).

Julian Assange Will Die Alongside Your 1st Amendment Rights

Accidentally disclosed information confirms the US is actively planning to prosecute Julian Assange. What happens to Assange will almost certainly change what can be lawfully published in our democracy. This threat to our freedoms is being largely ignored because Assange, once a progressive journalist, is now regarded as a hero-turned-zero. At stake? The ability of all journalists to inform the public of things the government specifically wants to withhold

A clerical error revealed the Justice Department secretly has filed criminal charges against Assange. Court papers in what appears to be an unrelated case used cut-and-pasted language from documents prepared previously against Assange.

USMCA ENTRENCHES TECH COMPANIES’ RIGHT TO CENSOR

President Trump hailed the trade agreement he signed with Mexico and Canada last week as “great for all our countries.” Perhaps he doesn’t know that the NAFTA-replacing trade agreement, USMCA, gives tech giants in Silicon Valley a special legal privilege to censor his own supporters — and anyone else they find “objectionable.”

Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube all engaged in pre-election censorship against Republicans and Trump supporters. Yet they’ve managed to sneak a liability protection into President Trump’s trade bill that would make it even easier for them to censor their own users.

USMCA entrenches the tech giants’ legal protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which grant them legal immunity for user-generated content. This is an important part of the law that allows tech platforms to host a wide variety of speech with light-touch moderation.

Ron Paul Says Trump’s New Trade Treaty that Replaces NAFTA Actually Increases Government Control

Ron Paul analyzed Trump’s new treaty, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) that replaces the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and found that the USMCA expands government control over trade. For example, it requires 75% of car parts to be made in North America, which will raise car prices on those using materials outside of North America, it requires auto workers to earn at least $16 per hour, which will increase prices, and it forces Mexico to import US-style compulsory unionism. The new USMCA entangles all three countries in environmental standards and monetary policy. A true free trade deal would simply reduce or eliminate tariffs and other trade barriers. It would not dictate wages and labor standards, or require inter-governmental cooperation on environmental standards and monetary policy.

Turkey's Economy Is A House of Cards - Consumer Debt Crisis Emerges

Turkey's soaring inflation, plunging currency, surging interest rates, and a collapsing stock market, has ended almost two decades of stable economic growth and the "good life" for Turkish consumers that started in 2001. Now, the greatest threat facing Turkey is a structural one: its desperate need for foreign financial resources.

A stable economic environment combined with easy access to global liquidity provided Turkey with abundant foreign resources.

The decade of expansionist monetary policies of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank enabled countries like Turkey to obtain cheap foreign resources and endowed Turkey with a rate of about 5% stable growth.

From 2003-2008, Turkey registered an annual growth of 5.9%. From 2009-2017, the rate of growth was 4.9% per year.

However, after 2014, there were signs the stable growth party was coming to an end. External expansionist policies were nearing an end and interest rate hike cycle was imminent.

Blain: "Are We Backing The Wrong Country In The Saudi-Iran Race"

A digression: Saudi vs Iran?

I had a number of comments about Monday’s porridge on the significance of Qatar pulling out of Opec, and what next for Saudi. What is the relevance for markets they asked?

That’s interesting question. Donald Trump recently told us that his successful negotiations and personal relationship with Mohammed bin Salman attracted planned investment of $450 bln into the US, including $110 bln in defence orders, from Saudi Arabia. He warned all that could be undone if we don’t turn a blind eye to the Khashoggi murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Americans were permitted to travel there, I would love to tour Iran.

The art; the music; the continuity of history; the push the country is making toward educating both their young men, and their young women, encourages me to think that given time and space, it could be absolutely thriving state, and a great trading partner for the world

Unfortunately, Netanyahu's usual dystopian, hubristic view of Iran means only one thing; it must be destroyed in a horrendous war, but that the costs of such a war will only be borne...in American blood, and American money.

It is more than a little disconcerting to me, that President Trump's two best friends in the Middle East, are Prince bin Salman, the Saudi Butcher of Yemen, and Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, the Israeli Butcher of Gaza.

Qatar's OPEC Exit May Just Be The Beginning

Authored by Tim Daiss via OilPrice.com,

Much has already been written over the last 24 hours by pundits and analysts alike about Qatar’s decision to leave the Organization of the Oil Exporting Countries (OPEC) by January next year. Some have chimed in, claiming that it’s an irrational move, while others have, perhaps correctly, attributed it to “toxic politics” in the always volatile Middle East. The latter view has much credibility given Qatar’s ongoing geopolitical rift with many of its Arab neighbors over allegations of financing terrorist groups, which led to a regional economic boycott of the country last year.

"We'll Do It Too": Putin Threatens Arms Race If US Nixes Nuclear Treaty

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that the Kremlin would "respond appropriately" if the United States pulls out of the Cold War-era nuclear weapons treaty that prohibits intermediate and shorter-range nuclear missiles, according to the WSJ .

In October, President Trump said that Washington would withdraw from the 1987 treaty, citing Russia's development of the 9M729 cruise missile - which Moscow has been working on for several years. As we noted in September, Russia has been working on sub-launched hypersonic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear payload.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Trump's incontrovertible proof that this has actually happened.... is utterly nowhere to be seen.

Threats, allegations, demonization, and sanctions are generally the prelude to a war. And how the dickens can one blame Putin for making this statement, considering how badly the US government has blamed it countless times for things it utterly did not do, say the alleged "annexing" of Crimea.

Never Forget: George Bush's Wars Set The Stage For 25 Years Of Endless War

By 1989, it had become apparent to all - everyone except the CIA, of course - that the Soviet economy, and thus the Soviet state was in very deep trouble.

In November 1989, the Berlin Wall came down in the face of Soviet impotence. And, with the Cold-War corpse not even cold yet, president George Bush used the newly apparent Soviet weakness as an opportunity to expand US foreign interventionism beyond the limits that had been imposed on it by a competing Soviet Union. Over the next decade, Bush and his successor Bill Clinton — who very much carried on Bush's ideals of global interventionism — would place Iraq, Somalia, and Yugoslavia in the crosshairs.

"2018 Is Starting To Look Historic": This Is The Worst Market Since Nixon's Presidency

Usually the excuse "nothing is working" is used by finance professionals when begging clients not to pull their money, desperate to explain woeful performance and when there are no other explanations left. Only in 2018, that excuse is actually spot on.

After another abysmal day for stocks, in which stocks suddenly "waterfalled" due to coordinated CTA liquidations once the S&P500 breached its 200DMA, which saw both the S&P and the Dow turn to just positive for the year, the broader market suffered one of its worst, if relatively muted, sessions in the past three years.

As a result, market statisticians continue to fall over each other to describe the pain being felt across asset classes. And while it is customary to use the phrase "since Lehman" when in need of a blanket synonym for "dreadful", one analyst framed performance in 2018 differently: things haven’t been this bad since Richard Nixon’s presidency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a question of "if" the markets will tank, completely, but when.

Ron Paul Trashes Trump Foreign Policy: Doing The Same Thing And Expecting Different Results

After a week of insisting that a meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 meeting in Argentina was going to happen, President Trump at the last minute sent out a Tweet explaining that due to a Russia/Ukraine dispute in the Sea of Azov he would no longer be willing to meet his Russian counterpart.

According to Trump, the meeting had to be cancelled because the Russians seized three Ukrainian naval vessels in Russian waters that refused to follow instructions from the Russian military. But as Pat Buchanan wrote in a recent column: how is this little dispute thousands of miles away any of our business?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is only being done in a runup to more demonizing of Russia and Putin; in looking at the way things are flowing now, due to Trump's short-sightedness, we may well see Americans (with the Ukrainians) in a war against Russia, which could include China on Russia's side.

I would strongly advise "caution" to President Trump on this; at this point, the US military does not have the money; the manufacturing; the troop strength, or the weaponry to take Russia (and/or China) head on in a military conflict.

SENATORS WORKING TO SLIP ISRAEL ANTI-BOYCOTT LAW THROUGH IN LAME DUCK

Cardin is making a behind-the-scenes push to slip an anti-boycott law into a last-minute spending bill being finalized during the lame-duck session, according to four sources familiar with the negotiations.

The measure, known as the Israel Anti-Boycott Act, was shelved earlier amid concerns about the infringement of free speech, after civil liberties groups argued that the original version would have allowed criminal penalties for Americans who participate in a political boycott of Israel. Some of the more aggressive elements of the provision have been removed under pressure, but the American Civil Liberties Union, which spearheaded the initial opposition to the bill, is still strongly opposed.

George H. Walker Bush: The Bush Family and the Mexican Drug Cartel

The personal relationship between the Bush and Salinas families was a matter of public record. Former President George H. W. Bush had developed close personal ties with Carlos Salinas and his father, Raul Salinas Lozano. (left)

Raul Salinas Lozano was the family patriarch, father of Carlos and Raul Junior. According to the former private secretary to Raul Salinas Lozano (in as statement to US authorities):

“… Mr. Salinas Lozano was a leading figure in narcotics dealings that also involved his son, Raul Salinas de Gortari, his son-in-law, Jose Francisco Ruiz Massieu, the No. 2 official in the governing Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, and other leading politicians, according to the documents. Mr. Ruiz Massieu was assassinated in 1994.” (Dallas Morning News, 26 February 1997, emphasis added).

Former president George H. W. Bush and Raul Salinas Lozano were “intimo amigos”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Noting the way Bush is being canonized by the press this morning, during his and after his memorial, compels me to remind the American people about some of the hard and irrefutable realities of the Bush dynasty.

America and Britain Complicit in Saudi Acts of Genocide in Yemen: 85,000 Children Dead, 14 Million at “Risk of Starvation”

The recent death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has helped shed more attention on the Saudi war of aggression in Yemen. According to the UN up to 14 million people are at risk of starvation in Yemen. Yet the American and British governments, who have the ability to stop the Saudi war machine in its tracks, continue the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia and its coalition partners.

Corporate politicians try and defend the military actions of the Saudi led coalition in Yemen by sheer unadulterated lies. UK Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt in a debate in the House of Commons blithely stated that the Saudi led coalition had not breached any international law.*

Yet evidence of war crimes in Yemen abound. Save The Children, which is feeding starving people in Yemen, has recently released figures showing that the Saudi instigated war in Yemen has caused the deaths of 85,000 children over the last four years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a special place in hell, for world leaders who think that the starvation of children, in countries where supplies have been blockaded, means nothing, and that this is simply "collateral damage".

I seriously doubt that history will be kind to either the Saudi Crown Prince bin Salman, also know as the Butcher of Yemen, and his American side-kick, the American Merchant of Death in Chief, President Trump.

Assange Case: U.S. Espionage Act Is Illegal, Says John Kiriakou

“The only thing that can save Julian Assange is jury nullification,” says whistleblower John Kiriakou, a former C.I.A. counterterrorism officer and a former senior investigator with the Senate Foreign Relations Committee based in Virginia, in an exclusive talk to this reporter.

U.S. Justice Department is acting behind the scenes to have Assange extradited from the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, and prosecuted in the U.S. Criminal charges against WikiLeaks’ founder were accidentally revealed in early November, when Assange’s name was found on the court filing of an unrelated case, suggesting that prosecutors had copied a boilerplate text and forgotten to change the defendant’s name.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kellen S. Dwyer, urging a judge to keep the matter sealed, wrote that

“due to the sophistication of the defendant and the publicity surrounding the case, no other procedure is likely to keep confidential the fact that Assange has been charged.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attempting to make a martyr out of Assange will have the polar opposite effect than that which the government wants to see happen.

When the truth becomes illegal to disseminate, the country in which this has happened, has gone completely fascist.

Feminism Was Created by the US Communist Party

Gloria Steinem - How The CIA Used Feminism To Destabilize Society

"In the 1960´s, the elite media invented second-wave feminism as part of the elite agenda to dismantle civilization and create a New World Order."

Since writing these words last week, I have discovered that before she became a feminist leader, Gloria Steinem worked for the CIA spying on Marxist students in Europe and disrupting their meetings. She became a media darling due to her CIA connections. MS Magazine, which she edited for many years was indirectly funded by the CIA.

Steinem has tried to suppress this information, unearthed in the 1970´s by a radical feminist group called "Red Stockings." In 1979, Steinem and her powerful CIA-connected friends, Katharine Graham of the Washington Post and Ford Foundation President Franklin Thomas prevented Random House from publishing it in "Feminist Revolution." Nevertheless the story appeared in the "Village Voice" on May 21, 1979.

How Rockefeller Created Feminism And Enslaved Humanity

In 50 short years since Rockefeller lobbed the feminism grenade into every American household, many women have lost touch with their natural loving instincts. Consequently, the family is in disarray, sexual depravity is rampant and birth rates have plummeted.

A woman makes this supreme sacrifice to only one man who will cherish her and provide for his family. Men instinctively want to fulfill this responsibility. This is the essence of the heterosexual contract (i.e. marriage): female power in exchange for male power expressed as love. Sex is the symbol of this exclusive bond. Marriage and family may not be for everyone but it is the natural path for most.

Feminism has trained women to reject this model as “an old fashioned, oppressive stereotype” even though it reflects their natural instincts.

Anti-Gun Bill Would Require Social Media History and Internet Search History of Prospective Buyers

Well here’s some unsolicited advice to the president: Listen to the people who elected you, who are tired of the U.S. as the world’s police force. Let Ukraine and Russia work out their own problems.

The Real Significance Of The French Tax Revolt

At some point, it is too much. Just as the citizens suffering under Soviet rule finally said no more, the people suffering under social-democratic rule might someday do the same. Observers have waited decades to see reforms that might forestall such a thing. Reforms haven’t happened. Now the people are in the streets, setting fires and protesting the police. -- And it’s not just France. It’s spreading to Belgium and the Netherlands – the building of a European Spring. -- What we see in Paris today might be the end of social democracy as we know it. What comes in its place is what the battle of ideas today is really about.

Mainstream Fake-News: The Devious Limited Hangout

The mainstream press could set their hounds loose and build a story into a huge wave. Over time, they could bring hidden players out into the open and expose them and wring confessions out of them. They could get some of these players to roll over and point to higher-level criminals. The story could achieve tsunami status, at which point the government would have to make arrests and lay on trials in open courtrooms. -- But that doesn’t happen. Limited hangout rules the day.

UKRAINE URGES NATO TO SEND WARSHIPS TO CONFRONT RUSSIA

Still bound and determined that the maritime incident last weekend in the Sea of Azov portends a full-scale war with Russia, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called on all NATO nations and other allied states to start relocating warships en masse to the sea to “assist Ukraine” in a conflict.

"We cannot accept this aggressive policy of Russia. First it was Crimea, then eastern Ukraine, now he wants the Sea of Azov. Germany, too, has to ask itself: What will Putin do next if we do not stop him?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poroshenko does a magnificent job of playing the crazed dictator, turning events around 180 degrees, so that the world can be brought around to see things his way.

Poroshenko's major problem right now, is that he cannot get re-elected next March, without a magnificent distraction, to make him appear to be on the keening edge of actually "winning" something, like a conflict with Russia.

So, what does he do, at the behest of NATO and the US?!?

He created an "incident" in the Sea of Azov, which, under maritime law, is actually under Russia control. His commanders never told the Russians that they were going to do this, hence they got stopped, and their staff got arrested.

And as for Crimea, and I hate having to say this perpetually, because in the wonderful words of Ron White, "You can't fix stupid", Russia never annexed Crimea.

Let's set the way-back machine (which is nearly IMPLODING, with the force of having to use it over and over again) to 2014.

The duly elected Ukrainian President, Yanukovich , was well and truly thrown under the proverbial bus, as he was considered as "too Russian Centric" to meet the needs of the US/NATO/WORLD BANK/ crowd.

So Western elements got rid of Yanukovich, and "Installed" Petro Poroshenkco as the Western-centric President, with an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

Because this guy kept screaming about an "imminent Russian invasion" for the first four years of his presidency, I seriously doubt that NATO is going to run "pass interference" for him in the Azov Sea.

Poroshenko has been a complete, nearly laughable embarrassment to all the Western influencers which put him into power, and now are experiencing a most painful and extreme case of "Buyer's Remorse" because of it.

Oh, and about Crimea getting "annexed by Russia"?!?

That never happened.

After the putsch in Kiev, the Crimean officials understood that there was no more representative government there, they did two things: first, post putsch, they asked the Crimean people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. Overwhelmingly, the Crimean people voted to leave Ukraine, and petition the Russian Federation for membership. and the Russian Federation agreed.

Even President Obama, on a television interview, confessed that the Government of the United States of America, played a role in getting Yanukovich out. President Obama admits that the US government brokered a deal in support of regime change in Kiev.

So, Petro Poroshenko, you can take your "impending war" with Russia to a dark place the sun cannot reach; this is merely lies, on top of lies, and you know it, as does Russia.

PC GONE MAD: Criticising migration could become CRIMINAL offence under new plan

The United Nations Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration seeks to make immigration a universal human right. MEP Marcel de Graaff said: “I would like to say some words on the global compact on migration. On the 10th and 11th of December there will be an international congress in Marrakesh Morocco. The participating countries are set to sign this agreement and although this joint agreement is not binding it is still meant to be the legal framework on which the participating countries commit themselves to build new legislation.

“One basic element of this new agreement is the extension of the definition of hate speech.

“The agreement wants to criminalise migration speech. Criticism of migration will become a criminal offence.

“Media outlets that give room to criticism of migration can be shut down.

DEPLOYED CIVILIANS CAN’T GET WORKER’S COMP — AND THAT’S BAD NEWS FOR A MILITARY THAT DEPENDS ON THEM

About 500,000 military veterans served in Iraq and Afghanistan. They were supported by nearly four times as many civilians, U.S.and foreign. As health complaints from these veterans increased, Congress asked the National Academy of Sciences to enter into an agreement with the Department of Defense to evaluate the available scientific evidence regarding associations between service members’ illnesses and exposure to toxic agents, environmental hazards, or medicines and vaccines. This evaluation generated the Persian Gulf War Veterans Act of 1998, and the Veterans Programs Enhancement Act of 1998. A section of the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is both insane, and officially horrible, for those people working for our Military; they need effective guidelines for HOW to get the help they need; not more regulations making that care impossible for them to attain.

And in looking at the many US-generated wars foreseen in the near future, about which the State Department, Pentagon, and White House are salivating mightily, it is up to the US government and military to fix this idiocy, and right the heck now.

QATAR QUITS OPEC

Qatar will leave the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries as of next month, its energy minister told media today, adding that the decision was part of a long-term strategy for growing its international presence on energy markets with a focus on gas.

Qatar is the world’s largest exporter of liquefied natural gas, but it has Australia breathing down its neck as well as emerging competition from the United States and other, smaller, producers.

“Qatar has decided to withdraw its membership form OPEC effective January 2019 and this decision was communicated to OPEC this morning,” Saad al-Kaabi said, as quoted by Reuters, at a news conference. He said the decision had been hard to make since Qatar had been a member of the cartel for almost six decades, but it had very little influence on OPEC decisions. Qatar produces about 600,000 bpd, which ranks it among the smaller OPEC producers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So what happens when OPEC cracks up, which it looks as though it is on the verge of happening now, and how will this affect oil prices going into 2019?

REPORT: SOROS-FUNDED UNIVERSITY FORCED OUT OF HUNGARY

A university funded by George Soros has been forced out of the billionaire’s native country of Hungary, according to a Monday report.

“The Central European University, founded by George Soros, said on Monday it had been forced out of Hungary in “an arbitrary eviction” that violated academic freedom, and it confirmed plans to enroll new students in neighboring Austria next year,” said Reuters.

Soros, who donates millions to leftist nonprofits mostly in the United States, has been engulfed in a battler with the right-leaning leader of his native land, Prime Minister Victor Orban. The main point of contention is immigration policy. Soros often funds open borders groups, while Hungary has refused to partake in the harboring of Middle Eastern and African migrants. Orban forced Soros’ Open Societies Foundation out of Hungary earlier this year.

CEU is not thrilled with its eviction

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bravo, Hungary, well done!!

And BTW, why don't international countries just whisk away the illegal immigrants, and then gently, (no hurting, now!)air lift them on top of every property George Soros owns, then drop them there; I really think this man is well overdue for a taste of his own "Cultural Enrichment", don't you?!? :-)

America’s Ongoing Holocaust Of The Poor

Almost a week ago I saw a story on Zerohedge about how the life expectancy rate has fallen in the US for the third year in a row.

Our deficits may finally be coming home to roost

There are no “free lunches” in fiscal policy. All government spending must be paid for by taxpayers, either today or in the future. The burden of deficit spending may show up as an inflation tax, if the Fed opts to monetize the debt. -- More likely, the burden will fall on future generations that inherit a smaller capital stock and are faced with paying higher tax rates.

UN Tamping Down Free Speech On Mass Immigration?

Dutch politician and European Parliament member Marcel de Graaff has issued a dire warning about the United Nations’ frightening vision to criminalize opposition to mass migration. The baby blue wanna-be tyrannical organization is even calling for policing of the media on the issue. You probably haven’t heard much about de Graaff’s remarks. That’s because the globalist big box media we have today is already in the camp of the pro-migration authoritarians.

US Defense Contractor Posts Job Offering For "Classified Contingency Operations" In Ukraine

The geopolitical analysis site SouthFront has unearthed from the pages of LinkedIn an incredible public job offering by a US defense contractor which reveals potentially sensitive information. The job posting mentions "classified Contingency Operations" in Ukraine and was posted a mere 15 days ago — just prior to last Sunday's incident between the Russian and Ukrainian navies in the Kerch Strait.

Writes SouthFront, the US-based defense contractor company "Mission Essential" accidentally revealed a US military specialist deployment in the combat zones in Ukraine via a Job Advertisement on LinkedIn.

Crucially, it's yet further evidence which disproves the years-long claims by Washington that the United States is not directly involved militarily in the Ukraine conflict. The public posting suggests US special forces operations are indeed active and ongoing as tensions with Russia soar.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me, that President Trump has been very happy, to double down on a very bad idea.

That "bad Idea", which goes back to President Obama, was that an infusion of capitalistic vigor, and military "advisors, were going to work to give Ukraine the place it deserved at the table with NATO and the EU.

Unfortunately, due to the amazing levels of corruption under Poroshenko's watch, which apparently didn't bother either President Obama, or President Trump such relationships are not, nor may ever be, in Ukraine's grasp.

What we have here is a paramilitary dictatorship, desperate to get those republics they lost, like Donbass, back under the Ukrainian orbit.

How much the US is going to "assist them" is anyone's guess. But that incident in the Kerch Gulf, coupled with the placement of this ad, doesn't augur well for peace in the region at all.

US SECRETARY OF STATE POMPEO CONDEMNS IRAN MISSILE TEST

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday condemned what he described as Iran’s testing of a medium-range ballistic missile capable of carrying multiple warheads as a violation of the international agreement on Tehran’s nuclear program.

Amid tension between Washington and Tehran over ballistic missiles, Pompeo warned in a statement released on Twitter that Iran is increasing its “testing and proliferation” of missiles and called on the Islamic Republic to “cease these activities.”

US President Donald Trump pulled out of an international nuclear agreement in May and reimposed sanctions on Tehran, criticising the deal for not including curbs on Iran’s development of ballistic missiles or its support for proxies in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Will SOMEONE in the room please give Pompeo some Calcium and Magnesium, please, before the guy has a conniption?!?

Here is the UN resolution on these issues:

Here is what the resolution actually states:

Resolution 2231 (2015)

Ballistic missile-related transfers and activities
What are the restrictions on Iranian ballistic missile activities?
Paragraph 3 of Annex B of resolution 2231 (2015) calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.

What are the restrictions on ballistic missile-related transfers to or activities with Iran?

Resolution 2231 (2015)The document goes on to state:

"Ballistic missile-related transfers and activities

What are the restrictions on Iranian ballistic missile activities?
Paragraph 3 of Annex B of resolution 2231 (2015) calls upon Iran not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles designed to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology.

What are the restrictions on ballistic missile-related transfers to or activities with Iran?

Pursuant to paragraph 4 of Annex B of resolution 2231 (2015), if approved in advance on a case-by-case basis by the Security Council, all States may participate in and permit:

the supply, sale or transfer directly or indirectly from their territories, or by their nationals or using their flag vessels or aircraft to or from Iran, or for the use in or benefit of Iran, and whether or not originating in their territories."

But, unfortunately for his outrage (which needs a separate room for some rational containment at this point, )Mr. Pompeo cannot prove that these missiles are being engineered for nuclear usage; they are simply medium range ballistic missiles which are capable of carrying multiple warheads. And with so many countries looking to attempt to take a "bite" out of Iran, (like Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the US), why does Iran not have the right to take care of itself militarily, and work on domestically produced missiles with which which can defend itself?!?

Oh, and Mr. Pompeo, one more thing that you didn't get with your morning "memos" a couple of months ago, must have been the following;

Per IAEA inspections, Iran still compliant on the P5+30 deal

So, Sir, if the IAEA states that Iran is still in compliance with the P5+1 agreement, how in the name of heaven can you state, with a straight face, that the test Iran did "violates UNSCR 2231", when you cannot prove, incontrovertibly, that the test was for a nuclear bomb?!? The short, moral and logical answer is, you cannot.

Multiple, Sir: not nuclear.One begins with an M, not an O.

Oh, and while we're talking about the Middle East nuclear weapons proliferation issue, and the rhino snoring fitfully in the living room,(spoiler alert: Israel's nuclear weapons), can you please explain to my brother and sister Americans why the American tax payers are still paying for weapons and defense for this country, when such action is Constitutionally forbidden by the Symington and Glenn Amendments?!?

Any enlightenment here, Mr. Pompeo?!? Why does Congress choose to break the law, over and over again, by providing funding and weapons for Israel, while homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets; our infrastructure is collapsing in front of us; and we are living in a Thirdworldistan nation, at this point in the history of the Unhinged, Surveilled, State of Amerika.

UN GENERAL ASSEMBLY URGES ISRAEL TO COMPLETELY WITHDRAW FROM GOLAN HEIGHTS

The vote followed US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's announcement that Washington plans to reject a UN General Assembly resolution on the Golan Heights region given the document's "anti-Israel bias".

A resolution urging Israel to withdraw from the entirety of the Golan Heights has been adopted by the majority of the countries represented in the UN General Assembly (UNGA).

The Syrian Golan resolution was approved by a vote of 99 in favor, 10 against and 66 abstentions during the UNGA's Friday session.

The document declared that Israel's decision to extend its legislation on the Golan Heights is null and void and that the Jewish state should withdraw from the strategically-important territory.

Munzer Munzer, acting charge d’affaires of Syria’s permanent delegation to the UN, accused Israel of continuing to occupy “a precious part of our land” as Syrian people there “continue to suffer because of this occupation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unless Israel is forced, militarily, to get out of the Golan, such a "give back" of this territory will only happen... when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

U.S. Navy admiral Scott Stearney found dead in apparent suicide

Vice Adm. Scott Stearney, who oversaw U.S. Navy forces in the Middle East, was found dead Saturday in his residence in Bahrain, officials said. Defense officials told CBS News they are calling it an "apparent suicide."

Stearney was the commander of the U.S. Navy's Bahrain-based 5th Fleet. Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of Fifth Fleet, has assumed command, the Navy said in a statement.

"Scott Stearney was a decorated Naval warrior. He was a devoted husband and father, and he was a good friend to all," the statement said.

Deep Quandaries of the Deep State

The potential for a stand-off exists that will confound any effort to untangle these things, and I can see how that might lead to an extraordinary crisis in which Mr. Trump has to declare some form of emergency or perhaps martial law to clean out this suppurating abscess of illegality and sedition. That can only be the last and worst resort, but what if the US judicial system just can’t manage to clean up the mess it has made?

G7 declares 'unwavering support' for Ukraine over Russia standoff

Foreign ministers from the world's seven biggest economies, known as the Group of Seven or G7, have condemned Russia's actions in Kerch Strait as they reaffirmed their "unwavering support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity".

A statement by G7 members - the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the High Representative of the European Union - on Friday said there was "no justification" for Russia's use of military force against Ukrainian ships and naval personnel.

"We urge restraint, due respect for international law, and the prevention of any further escalation. We call on Russia to release the detained crew and vessels and refrain from impeding lawful passage through the Kerch Strait," the statement read.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Don't the congenital idiots who write advertising/position propaganda for the G7 understand: Crimea was NEVER annexed by Russia. Let me break this out in small words, so that you will comprehend what I am saying.

Let' set the way-back machine to 2014.

In a plot, to which President Obama alluded in a television interview, that the US was one of the leading sponsors of regime change in Kiev, as Ukraine's President, President Yanukovich, was infinitely more Russia centric, economically, rather than Western-Centric.

Washington was behind Ukraine Coup; Obama admits that the US brokered a deal in support of regime change

OK, writers of this Codswallop for the G7, IF I KNOW THIS, MILLIONS AROUND THE WORLD UNDERSTAND THIS AS WELL. But of course, given an organisation the size and financial girth of the G7, the truth, when the independent media disproves you lies, cannot be tolerated.

What Crimea did, is perfectly legal to do under the Charter of the UN, (and most of your members are actual members of the UN, Right?!?) This is called the right to "peaceful self-determiniation."

The people of Crimea did two things. First, Crimean citizens were asked if they wanted stay on as a part of Ukraine, or leave Ukraine, and petition the Russian Government to become one of its members. Crimeans voted, overwhelmingly, to leave Ukraine, and become part of the Russian Federation.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, in the eyes of the UN; but because Crimea voted to join Russia, rather than stay with Ukraine, such an outcome was not to your liking, so you decided to lie about it.

It is very sad, that you think that you can get away with this kind of attitude and behaviour, and lie to the public, when both Americans and people around the world, already know the truth about what happened with Crimea; your inability to accept the truth, because the outcome was not to your liking, is a very dangerous place from which to make decisions about what your "next step" with Russia will be.

Libya’s Lost Hope

When the United States, France, the UK and a number of other governments sent forces into Libya, the people were to have security and democracy. Seven years later, all that they have had is chaos, death and destruction.

When General Khalifa Haftar boarded the Russian aircraft carrier, Admiral Kuznetsov in January 2017, Putin announced that the Libyan general had a powerful friend, but Vladimir Putin is not General Haftar’s first important friend. Once, he was one of Muammar Qaddafi’s favorites and was given the honor in 1986 of leading an invasion of neighboring Chad. The venture failed and Qaddafi denounced him as a rogue and abandoned him. He would have remained a prisoner of the Chadians if the CIA hadn’t rescued him and moved him to the United States to organize the National Front for the Salvation of Libya in preparation to depose the Libyan dictator.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love the smell of irony in the morning!!

But mending this country, which fell apart at the seams, after Qaddafi was assassinated by American-backed mercs, will be a very difficult thing to do; I have to wish general Haftar luck, in this endeavor, and hope that he will have both the resources with which to heal these national wounds in Libya.

Swedish Nurses Enroll in Self-Defence Classes After Rise in Violence

Swedish nurses who work in the emergency room of a hospital in Kalmar are taking self-defence classes due to a rise in violent incidents from patients.
The hospital has also taken active measures to increase the number of security guards stationed at the emergency room to better deal with situations before they escalate into violence, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

Andrea Berg, a nurse in the Kalmar hospital ER, is behind the initiative saying that she had even seen colleagues beaten by patients who she described as stressed due to factors including long wait times. Berg added that she had also seen a rise in violence outside of work saying, “As a woman, you are much more exposed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that other European countries are learning how deadly unfettered immigration is, and rather than criminalize any comments on what it has caused, start to deal with these crises we are seeking, intelligently and responsibly.

Otherwise, Europe... will be only a fleeting memory, in contrast to the horrific vile actions of those who would destroy the people who welcomed them into their country, and frequently into their homes.

Just two hours ago federal prosecutors assigned to John Huber, the US attorney investigating the Clintons, reached out to a whistleblower in the Clinton Foundation – The first time we’ve seen contact between a Clinton Foundation whistleblower and that particular federal office. That just happened tonight.

SHERYL SANDBERG ORDERED FACEBOOK STAFF TO INVESTIGATE GEORGE SOROS AFTER HE GAVE THIS SPEECH (READ IT)

Sheryl Sandberg asked Facebook staff to research George Soros because he gave a speech boldly critical of the social media giant as a “menace,” reports the New York Times tonight.

After Davos, "in an email in January to senior communications and policy executives," Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg "asked Facebook's communications staff to research George Soros's financial interests in the wake of his high-profile attacks on tech companies."

If she was willing to do this over a mere billionaire, imagine what Facebook might have done in researching news organizations and reporters who are critical of Facebook?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would imagine that Sandberg's next actions will be to continue to deplatform, and professionally assassinate sites she doesn't like, with the usual poisoned cocktail of half-lies and innuendo, as we have seen, previously.

OF course, nothing will actually be done to prevent this, because Facebook Twitter, and Google, have become ugly-sister triumverate, in service to America's "Deep State.", which also despises honest logic, or alternative agendas than their own.

SUICIDES, OVERDOSES AND DIABETES: US LIFE EXPECTANCY FALLS FOR 3RD STRAIGHT YEAR

During a year when drug overdose deaths jumped to a record high 72,000 - roughly one every seven minutes - it's probably not surprising that overall life expectancy for Americans declined for the third straight year in 2017. But according to data from the CDC, drugs weren't the only factor at play: Deaths from suicide, the flu, diabetes and many other causes also increased.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would suggest that all of us are under enormous pressures, financially, and socially, to "win" at any cost, no matter the morals involved, and with ever-increasing work tasks.

That, coupled with medications, and a lousy, unsupplemented diet, will always steal the health away from people, if they are not careful about understanding the stresses involved in their lives, and how to manage them.

Prayer, meditation, grounding,and exercise can really come in handy, depending upon what your natural orientation might be, to these activities.

Toxic corporations are now working managers to the bone, to improve that all important bottom line, which usually translates into those managers not having the kind of smart, intellectually lithe people, who can handle whatever comes their way, in a calm, client-centric manner.

There are many online resources which can be helpful, if you are applying for a job with a large corporation, so that you can determine in advance, what companies you would like to work for, and engineer your resume to well match the needs of those companies.

One resource I have found as follows: http://glassceiling.com/ This will give you an overview of management style, salaries, and work/life balance.

As most of you know, I do marketing for a living; and I cannot tell you the number of times when I have connected with a receptionist, who has somehow gotten it into their heads, that rudeness is a form of personal empowerment.

In my world, it is education, compassion,and understanding which are the fundamentals which create the basis for personal empowerment.

I always try to remember, if I get a really negative response from someone, I must understand that I have no clue what has happened to that person right before they took my phone call.

Perhaps they have just learned that one of their parents is slipping into dementia, and care arrangements are going to have to be quickly made; perhaps it is a child who is ill, or having bad experiences at school with bullies; you never know.

Just bless them, and let them go; the next time around may be far more productive a phone encounter.

Amazon May Be Hiding Its Plans to Test New Wireless Tech by Masquerading as a Massage Spa

What do a Silicon Valley massage spa, a local community college, and a California plastics manufacturer have in common? They will soon be testing hundreds of cutting-edge wireless devices, according to an application for an experimental permit filed last week with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission.

If that sounds unlikely, it is. It seems much more likely that the new devices will actually be tested at three nearby Amazon facilities. These include two buildings belonging to the company’s secretive Lab126 research division, and one of the retailer’s largest fulfillment centers in the state.

On 19 November, a company called Chrome Enterprises sought permission to test up to 450 prototype devices using Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS), a new technology that aims to deliver ultrafast wireless broadband over shared radio frequencies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a question of who actually gets the money from the ultimate sale of those devices, which have to work magnificently to receive approval.

42-minute video: Q promises IMMINENT .01% endgame arrests. Patriots’ 2 paths: victory with demand for full Truth, OR dismiss Q as .01% PSYOP with our increased demand for .01% ARRESTS FOR ONGOING CRIMES annually killing millions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Psychological operations (PSYOP): operations to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence emotions, motives, and objective reasoning… The purpose of United States psychological operations is to induce or reinforce behavior favorable to U.S. objectives.

I’ve followed Q with interest for the past year, with reports and historical context. This last report provides my detailed analysis, documentation for factual claims, and links to prior reports.

My bottom line is that Q’s source has three possible explanations, and connected Patriot responses:

1. Q is authentic. Arrests of .01% criminals might require Patriots’ demand for full Truth of our history, as intelligent action in the present requires comprehensive factual accuracy of our status.
2. Q is another .01% PSYOP. This will be proven by ongoing excuses why arrests must wait. Patriots must conclude for themselves what is and is not reasonable justification.

HOUSTON — George Herbert Walker Bush, the president who managed the end of the Cold War and forged a global coalition to oust Iraqi forces from Kuwait, has died at age 94. In a political career that spanned three decades, he lost his bid for re-election and lived to see his son win the Oval Office.

Gun Control Fails New Jersey

If that is what gun-control looks like, then I don’t want any of it. The reason gun control fails is obvious. In the criminal justice system, only the first crime is expensive: all the other crimes are free. You don’t care if you use a stolen gun or a stolen car once you are going to commit murder. There is no deterrent, no incremental penalty that changes your behavior, once you’re the gang hitman. That is why gun control only disarms honest people..which is what the Dirty Jersey politicians wanted all along. -- Gun control works for Jersey politicians but fails for New Jersey. Honest people die because of it. -- Have you had enough?

Mueller has tortured enough minnows and made enough noise but if he hasn’t got the goods to nail Trump the whale by now he should shut up shop and go home

Donald Trump has never made any secret that he enjoys doing business with Russians.

When I interviewed him for GQ magazine in 2008, he told me how he’d recently made a $60 million profit on a house in Florida that way.

Donald Trump has never made any secret that he enjoys doing business with Russians.

The fact remains that Mueller, so far as we know, has yet to prove Trump either colluded with the Russians to fix the election or had business activities with Russia that clouded his approach to dealing with Russia.

Nor do we know if Cohen has any actual evidence to implicate the President in wrongdoing.

Tusk 'Sure' EU to Roll Over Sanctions Against Russia Over Kerch Row in December

The Kerch Strait incident took place on Sunday when three Ukrainian naval vessels, heading from the Black Sea to the Azov Sea, tried to pass through the strait without obtaining permission from Russia and thus illegally crossing the country's sea border.

European Council President Donald Tusk said on Friday he was sure that the EU leaders would roll out new sanctions against Russia due to Moscow's response to Ukraine's naval activity in the Kerch Strait.

"The de-escalation in the Sea of Azov is a cause of a grave concern to us, and of course Russia's use of force against Ukrainian ships is totally unacceptable… Europe is united in its support of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity. And this is why I am sure that the EU will roll over the sanctions against Russia in December," Tusk said at a press conference during G20 summit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is as simple as the Ukrainian sailors having crossed into Russia's sovereign marine territory; they were wrong, period, end of discussion.

Unfortunately, the US and its European allies have nasty habit of accusing Russia for things Russia never did, and ultimately using that as the pretext for war.

I would like to see all aggrieved parties come together to step back from the precipice here, and for Poroshenko to ultimately admit that his sailors were dead wrong here, and make amends. Of course, this will not happen, because Poroshenko is the US's and NATO's "picador" when it comes to relations with Russia. The last thing we need... is another world war.Ac

Buchanan: Is Putin The Provocateur In The Kerch Crisis?

Authored by Patrick Buchanan via The Unz Review,

On departure for the G-20 gathering in Buenos Aires, President Donald Trump canceled his planned weekend meeting with Vladimir Putin, citing as his reason the Russian military’s seizure and holding of three Ukrainian ships and 24 sailors.

But was Putin really the provocateur in Sunday’s naval clash outside Kerch Strait, the Black Sea gateway to the Sea of Azov?

Or was the provocateur Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko?

First, a bit of history.

In 2014, after the pro-Russian regime in Kiev was ousted in a coup, and a pro-NATO regime installed with U.S. backing, Putin detached and annexed Crimea, for centuries the home port of Russia’s Black Sea fleet.

With the return of Crimea, Russia now occupied both sides of Kerch Strait. And this year, Russia completed a 12-mile bridge over the strait and Putin drove the first truck across.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Pat Buchanan, you miss a very important point here, which needs repeating.

Russia did NOT annex Crimea.

After Poroshenko was installed as President in 2014, understanding that there would only be corruption now from the Ukrainian government in Kiev, the Crimean officials did two things.

First, they did a referendum with the Crimean people, to determine if they wanted to stay with the "new Ukraine", or slip away, and request a transfer of governance with Russia.

They overwhelmingly said that they wanted to petition the Russian Federation for acceptance into that Federation, and Russia accepted this.

There was utterly no annexation; just a referendum, followed by a petition to join the Russian Federation; nothing more, nothing less. Pat, please check your history, as I know that what I have said is the absolute truth of how this came down.

But you are absolutely correct, when you talk about this not being America's fight, and particularly right now.

At U.S. Supreme Court Argument, Indiana Claims It Can Forfeit Cars For Speeding, Minor Drug Crimes

Arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday, Indiana’s solicitor general was already trying to defend confiscating a $42,000 Land Rover taken from Tyson Timbs, who sold less than $400 worth of drugs. Before the day was through though, Solicitor General Thomas Fisher found himself arguing that the Constitution would let him forfeit luxury cars caught going five miles over the speed limit.

Both scenarios involved civil forfeiture, which allows law enforcement agencies to seize and keep property, even over the most tenuous links to wrongdoing, as well as the Eighth Amendment’s ban on excessive fines. During Wednesday’s oral argument, Fisher claimed that the latter didn’t apply to the former.

Incredulous of Fisher’s position, Justice Stephen Breyer asked him, “So what is to happen if a state needing revenue says anyone who speeds has to forfeit the Bugatti, Mercedes, or a special Ferrari or even jalopy?”
